For the last 6 days I have been sick, my symptoms are as follows:

-Headache: Dull pain in the base of my head, and also around my eyes (maybe the eyes themselves? i cant tell), along with a lesser pain throughout my entire head. Does not respond to 600mg ibuprofen very much at all.

-Fever: When not on the ibuprofen the fever is around 101-103 and has spiked at 105.2, on ibuprofen it is down around normal temperatures and 100, taken with an ear thermometer.

-Weakness in Limbs: My legs feel pretty weak, but not massively so, enough for me to notice and have a harder time climbing stairs and such. My arms also feel weak but to a lesser extent

-Rash: I had a kind of pink splotchy rash all over my torso and arms yesterday (gone today), it didn't itch, hurt, etc.

-General tiredness for the last week

-Loss of appetite: Haven't really gotten the urge to eat anything, and when i feel hungry sometimes i just don't want to eat.

Info about me:

-5'10" 169 lbs
-Strep is negative, both tests
-Blood test came back negative for mononucleosis
---Showed a low white count, liver and kidney function is normal
-Chest X-ray today, should know about it tomorrow
-Only taking 600mg ibuprofen every 6 hours as instructed by the doctor

Any help is appreciated, my doctor doesn't know what it is
